Q:

Is my weight gain connected with my intake of insulin though my pump? I've been on the insulin pump for just over a couple of years now. I've also gained 40 pounds.

Hi Twinborne, Thanks for the question! Unfortunately I am not medical professional so I would not be unable to provide you with the answer you are looking for. I did however find an article and a diabetes forum that discusses a similarity to your question, it is pretty informative and hopefully it provides you with some insight to answer your question! As always I would also recommend consulting this with your doctor as he or she would be able to provide you with a more solid answer to what you are looking for. I sure hope this helps. http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/treatment-and-care/medication/insulin/getting-started.html http://www.diabetesforums.com/forum/type-1-diabetes-pregnancy/58559-does-increase-insulin-intake.html
